Hans Christian is a manufacturer of sturdy sailing boats ideal for cruising. The majority of the designs are credited to Robert H. Perry, Harwood Ives, Scott Sprague, and Tommy Chen, and production began in the early 1970s.
In the mid-1980s, the company sought to create the "ultimate cruising sailboat" and commissioned the development of a new series of boats based on a more contemporary hull design. This resulted in the creation of the Christina series, which featured the 52 and 48 models designed by Doug Peterson and the 40 and 43 models designed by Scott Sprague. Construction took place at the Horng Bin Marine Yacht boatyard in Taiwan, and in the early 1990s, the molds and construction were relocated to Thailand.
In November 2004, production of the traditional range of Hans Christian Yachts was handed over from Andersen Yachts Ltd to Pantawee Marine Co., Ltd. However, in February 2017, Pantawee Marine Co., Ltd announced the discontinuation of the traditional range of Hans Christian sailing yachts, including the 33T, 38MkII, 41T, 48T, and Christina 43', to make way for the production of other types of craft, including catamarans, under new management.
